This baby shower cake is supposed to be gender neutral. When I see the cake, all I think of is BOY. Any suggestions on what I can add to make it less boy looking?

Sorry the pic is not very bright. I guess my kitchen doesn't have enough light.

The clothes are on the word BABY.

It really doesn't look that light in person.

I think it looks cute but it does look alittle boyish with all the blue background. maybe put some tiny drop flowers in the grass or something

You guys are the best.

Ok, the writing on this cake right now is just plain white, like the clouds.

What if I changed the writing to a light green or pale pink? Would writing in pink make it too girlie then?

Thanks again.

Light green is a nice genger neutral color for shower cakes. So is yellow. Maybe some yellow flowers along the border or in the grass? Cute cake btw!!

I'd a big yellow sun at the top! That would brighten it up! And ditto on the flowers, maybe pink and purple or yellow?

*I'd DO a big yellow sun. Sorry, that's what happens when you are distracted/screwing around at work. lol
